FRITZ ERLER (German / 1868-1940)

Fritz Erler was born in Frankenstein in 1868. He studied at the Kunstakademie Breslau and then at the Académie Julian in Paris. Fritz Erler was an important figure in the Jugendstil movement (German Art Nouveau), and a contributor to the journal Jugend. He was also a member of the Jugendstil artistic group Scholle, and part of the Scholle Artists' Colony at Holzhausen am Ammersee. Fritz Erler died in Munich in 1940, his artistic legacy tarnished at the end by his willingness to paint portraits of prominent Nazis, including Adolf Hitler.
